‘Penny Dreadful’ Premiere: Watch the First Episode of Showtime’s “Psychosexual” Monster Drama

Showtime Penny Dreadful Premiere Watch Episode Eva Green
Showtime

We’ve been eager for a look at Showtime’s forthcoming “psychosexual” horror-drama ‘Penny Dreadful‘ before its May 11 premiere, and the wait is over. Watch Josh Hartnett and ‘300: Rise of an Empire‘ star Eva Green take on the likes of vampires, circus freaks and Dr. Frankenstein in the first full premiere episode of Showtime’s ‘Penny Dreadful’ right now!

In addition to Green and Hartnett’s characters as con man Ethan Chandler and the mysterious beauty Vanessa, the series stars Timothy Dalton as Sir Malcolm, a hardened African explorer on a deeply personal quest; Reeve Carney as Dorian Grey; Helen McCrory as spiritualist Madame Kali; ‘Skyfall”s Rory Kinnear; and ‘Doctor Who‘ vet Billie Piper as an Irish immigrant seeking to escape her dark past.

Helmed by ‘Skyfall‘ duo Sam Mendes and John Logan, Showtime describes ‘Penny Dreadful’ thusly:

In PENNY DREADFUL, some of literature’s most famously terrifying characters – including Dr. Frankenstein and his creature, Dorian Gray and iconic figures from the novel Dracula – become embroiled in Victorian London. The series weaves together these classic horror origin stories as the characters grapple with their monstrous alienation.

No doubt Showtime will be sinking its teeth into this one to fill the horror void left by ‘Dexter,’ but what are you waiting for? Check out the full hourlong premiere of ‘Penny Dreadful’ at the link below, and tell us if you’ll tune in for real when the new series premieres on Showtime May 11!
